Radio code problem 2002 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S (RESOLVED)
I have a question regarding my car radio access code.
Recently I replaced a battery on my car and now my radio is locked (I have 2002 Acura TL 3.2 S-Type). I called dealership to find out how can I unlock it and they told me that they have to remove my car radio to get it serial number and then they'll be able to give me a code.
I don't want to do it, and am searching for another way around it, if one actually exists.
Recently I've read a post on one of the forums saying that you have to search your glove compartment for a sticker that will give a dealer an idea on what my access code is. I found a sticker and I got the same sticker under the decor panel that goes a long the middle section of my car to the dash board when I came to the dealer and he removed it. The dealer wasn't able to recover a code using alpha numeric value from the sticker and he said that I have to remove my radio anyway.
Any idea why they weren’t able to recover my code? From what I see my radio was never been replaced and it’s an original one that came with the car hence that sticker code should work.
Any help will be appreciated because I don’t feel like taking my radio out.
